Investment Banker, Relocating from London
Lee has been absolutely fantastic throughout the hiring process. I have a somewhat unusual background for a role in M&A, but he immediately picked up on my tremendous drive to do all the things necessary for a role. The depth of experience and love of the job enables Lee to know what firms want / need from candidates beyond the standard cookie-cutter approach which 99% of headhunters use. From a personal perspective, Lee has spent a lot of time getting to know me and helping me think about how to present myself at interview. Absolutely top-notch.
Will was 10 out of 10! He talked me through everything and supported me all the way! Thumbs up from me 👍
The service has been a 10/10! Will was great at communicating right up until accepting the job offer and even met up with me in person to put a face to the name afterwards. I would definitely recommend your services.
I was extremely happy with the service, advice and follow-up received from Stuart. I would definitely use you again in the future and have already recommended you to some of my friends in accountancy.
Stuart has been helpful and understanding all the way and Sharps seem to be the only agency I have used for recruitment who seems to understand and take into account what I need at a point in time.
Liam Connolly has been amazing throughout my experience of finding a job. From the initial interview to finally securing my job. He has helped ease my anxiety in finding a new job and attending the interview.
Will absolutely smashed it, perfectly suited role to my skill set, plenty of opportunities for professional growth and the work atmosphere is aligned with my personal values and is a fantastic fit for my personality. Will went above and beyond to negotiate my desired salary. He also reassured me that the move would be the right one for me. He wasn’t wrong.!
I couldn't fault the recruiting service; the whole team was lovely since the first day we had a meeting. Liam then came to me with this opportunity and I managed to secure two jobs and start 1 in the space of less than 2 weeks. I also had other job offers and I spoke to Liam about it and we went thought the advantages and disadvantages of both jobs without him being biased and I’m so happy with the Decision I made after that.
I would absolutely use again. Jack was quick to pick up my initial query & within 24 hours had secured me an interview for a role that was a perfect match for me. Jack’s support and communication through the recruitment process was invaluable and I am very thankful for all of his help.
I had a great experience with both Jack and Aaron, they were both very helpful and were interested in what I wanted out of a role and company. I would use them again in the future. However, I do believe they managed to find me a role which I will stay in for a long time as it is the perfect fit for me.
Experience is professional, friendly, and efficient from the original phone call and information given for the placements.
Jack was great at actually listening to me and understanding what I was looking for in a role. He didn't push any roles on me that I hadn't asked them to look for. I experienced great communication throughout the whole process which I greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend Sharp Consultancy to friends and family. I will also be using you again in the future.
I am so grateful for this opportunity thanks to Karen and the team. It is going well and the company is one of the best I have ever worked for.
Karen was extremely helpful and proactive in securing my placement for me. She was very knowledgeable about her client and also went to great lengths to ensure that I was prepared for the meetings I had with them before they offered me a contract. She was always accessible and I never felt that she was rushing me. Her insights to the client and the sort of person that they were looking for were also essential in me securing this role. The manner and politeness of all staff I have spoken with over recent months has been exemplary.
I will certainly use again and have already recommended Sharp Consultancy to other colleagues & friends!
Karen was fantastic, would give her a 10. Lee then took over and was equally as supportive and good.
Lee is the consummate professional and very personable. He was helpful and understanding throughout the whole process and I appreciated his openness and integrity which gave great confidence in every conversation.
Thank you so much. I rate Andrew and his team a huge 10 They were all so friendly, knowledgeable and professional too and never stopped finding roles for me. I absolutely love my new role and the company I work for and cannot thank you and your staff enough. I’m happy in my work again! If I ever need another job I will definitely be calling Sharp first thing! I have recommended you to all the people I know and sing your praises each time.
I have no hesitation in recommending Lee to anyone in my network. In particular, he has kept in touch with me over the last 5/6 years being a source of impartial advise when needed.
Tom was very efficient and if he hadn’t of sent me an email, I wouldn’t have even considered changing jobs - he kept me up to date through the whole process. I am enjoying it very much, definitely the right move for me.
I would rate the service at Sharp Consultancy a 10! I have recommended Sharp as well as Liam to my friends and previous work colleagues. I would like to say Liam put me at ease following a quick turn of events that left me without a job and worrying myself sick. He made the process smooth and straight forward, for that I cannot thank him enough!!
I would like to say that I have been very impressed with Stuart's professionalism and persistence In getting me a role. I will certainly use again and have already recommended Sharp Consultancy to other colleagues & friends!
Karen, Stuart and Colin at Sharp have worked tirelessly to place me in the right position, considering me with everything that might be appropriate!
I would rate your service as 10 due to Liam's help and guidance throughout the process. I have never gone through a recruitment agency before so I was unsure what to expect but Liam was extremely helpful, in regular contact and matched me with a job suitable to my skill set. He was personable and offered guidance in a way that suited me, my needs and timescales. I would absolutely recommend your services and Liam in particular.
I would definitely rate the service a 10. Jamie has been fantastic and always kept me in the loop about roles and progress updates which is unique to your recruitment business even with the uncertainty of lockdown. I would recommend you to friends and to other colleagues from previous jobs if seeking employment.
It has to be a 10. I’ve dealt with a lot of agencies since been made redundant and a lot seem content to get you signed up and offer nothing after that. Sharp Consultancy and Andy have not been like that, Andy was very thorough when I first signed up, took time to listen to what I’d done and what I wanted to do. He has constantly been in touch to see how the job search was going and always kept me up to date with jobs he had available. Sharp Consultancy is the best agency I have dealt with.
I would definitely give you a 9 out of 10. Your service was excellent and I felt very valued. I would definitely use you again in the future.
I would like to give Stuart and Jamie a 10, they both stayed in regular contact with me during my job search and kept me informed of any roles that came to the market and generally how the market was going. Would definitely work with them both and Sharp Consultancy again.
I would recommend Sharp to colleagues. My previous company was very difficult to work around at times. Liam would call late and early, organise meeting and interviews around this particularly difficult schedule; and throughout, kept a balance of professionalism and friendliness which made the entire process feel easy and manageable.I couldn’t recommend Sharp Consultancy and in particular Liam Connolly highly enough.
I would score a 10, Stuart is lovely. He kept me fully informed of my progress and and possible roles. Brilliant follow up after starting my new role and he even sent me a little congratulations gift.
Andy has found the perfect job for me, and has also been a great source of advice and support through my interviewing process. I genuinely can’t thank Andy enough!

I have had the pleasure to work with Lee over the years from both the perspectives of an employer looking for professional staff and as a candidate.
He is great to work with not only because of his personable, sensible and professional approach and advice but also because of his fantastic connections across the professional and business community in the region (and beyond). His wide experience means there is very little that phases Lee (and his colleagues) and unlike some of his professional competitors, he consistently delivers on what he promises. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other businesses and to those looking for new opportunities.
Ross Flanagan - Finance Director
Aaron placed me in my current position. Aaron is extremely professional and personable but most importantly listened to what I was looking for, as a result he only contacted me with the right opportunities which is extremely refreshing. I have subsequently used him for recruitment opportunities and have been delighted with the results and will continue to utilise his skills in the future where the need arises.
Steve Hammell - CFO
I have worked with Lee over the last 12 years both as a candidate and a client in the corporate finance, banking and FD markets. He is extremely well connected with all the leading firms and people and is able to leverage this to open doors and create opportunities I had never expected. Lee has placed me into two roles, one of which has shaped my career ever since, and has also supported my recruitment of talented and energetic people on numerous occasions with great results. The thing that distinguishes Lee most clearly in my experience is his honest and candid approach - he tells you straight what you need to know, when you need to know it. This has been the cornerstone of a trusted relationship over a long period of time. I would, and indeed have, recommended Lee to friends, colleagues and employers and will continue working with him for the rest of my career.
John Kemp - Head of Finance
As usual Sharp Consultancy has provided exactly the candidate we were looking for. Aaron knows he is the first person I pick the phone up to on recruitment needs and hands down it is down to Aaron that as a candidate or hiring manager, Sharp Consultancy are first port of call
Adam Sumner - Group FD
Having worked with Aaron on a difficult assignment, I found his tenacity, integrity and overall quality of work to be second to none. I would not hesitate in using his services for future work.
